Bulgaria: About 670,000 Tons of Food Are Disposed of by Bulgarians Every Year pixabay.com

In Bulgaria, nearly 670,000 tons of food goes to the trash every year. The reason - households buy more than they can consume.

Administrative procedures make it difficult for manufacturers and shops to donate food with a low shelf-life. Bulgarians do not fully understand the labels on food labels, a study by the European Commission shows. This is one of the reasons for the high amount of food waste. People do not make a difference between the "use before" and "best to" labels.
